Danilo Melds Thick Electronica, Smooth R&B On 'All I Want' EP





Danilo Melds Thick Electronica, Smooth R&B On 'All I Want' EP

Danilo’s “All I Want” EP is classic late-night makeout music, and there’s not a damn thing wrong with that. Bedroom R&B in all senses of the term, every track is carefully constructed, showcases Danilo Riggs’s lovely tenor and righteous songwriting chops, and has every intention of getting in your pants.

As for the actual music, if the lyrics are a bit one-note on the subject of horizontal samba, the composition more than makes up for it. There’s true thick funk on “Liberty,” dense, almost synthwave production backing “Bringing it Back” and churchy organ and a slowdance ballad rhythm on “So In Love Master.” Danilo shows real understanding of all those forms, keeping them tied together tight in service of the EP’s overall vibe rather than getting lost in the details. 

At the heart of it all is Danilo’s voice. A clean, soulful tenor capable of soaring to Raphael Saddiq-level heights, it sets clear, sweet melodies for the eclectic songwriting to build around. It’s a voice to make even a lonely listener smile as it ranges across the register without missing a note.

 

Between the superb vocals, interesting songwriting and righteous commitment to makeouts past and future, we’re happy to recommend “All I Want” to anyone who has romantic aspirations this summer, or for that matter just feels like a sweet groove of an evening. “All I Want” is Danilo’s first EP, and we at The Deli are excited to see what comes next.
